One of the most exciting events of the sporting world took place yesterday, and it was none other than the prestigious GLO/CAF Awards.
The GLO/CAF awards recognises the efforts of African teams as well as players and hands out awards to deserving individuals and teams.
Arguably the most sought after award by any African player is the GLO/CAF African Player of the year. For an unprecedented fourth time in a row, Yaya Toure has been named Africa’s best player.
This record breaking achievement is in recognition of his immense contributions as playmaker to his club side Manchester City as well as his country Ivory Coast.
The midfielder was in imperious form last season notching up an unbelievable 20 plus goals to help his team to the Premier league title.
Yaya Toure, indispensable for both club and country is rated one of the best midfielders in the world.
Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama as well as Ahmed Musa were named in the African XI of the year.
